A System-Level Model for Evaluating Risks Associated with Geological CO2 Sequestration

Mounting evidence of global problems associated with excess atmospheric C02 requires a solution that can be implemented quickly, safely, and econmoically. Given these constraints, researchers worldwide have concluded that geologic sequestration is the best available option.

Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL) has developed a system-level model for geologic sequestration that tracks the fate of CO2 and is designed to include all associated risks. The system-level CO2 sequestration model, called CO2-PENS (Predicting Engineered Natural Systems) uses GoldSim as an upper level platform.
